CONGRATULATIONS to our amazing Lionesses for bringing football home!!

We couldn't be more proud of England winning 2-1 against Germany last night at the EURO Finals! Chloe Kelly's goal in the 110th minute at Wembley Stadium gave England its first major international title since the 1966 men's World Cup.

Wembley was filled to a record-winning capacity of 87,192 - the highest attended match at either a men's or women's European Championship.

Nearly 100,000 children have been part of that record-breaking attendance while 47% of all fans in the stadiums have been female. Tens of thousands of international fans have travelled to England, bringing a festive atmosphere to the nine host cities.

A peak audience of 17.4million watched the game on BBC One last night as Gabby Logan fronted the brilliant coverage.

Sarina Wiegman, England coach, said, 'What we've done is incredible. I knew we had England behind us – we saw that coming to the stadium. But the whole tournament we've had so much support from our fans. I'm so proud of the team.'

Chloe Kelly, England goalscorer: 'It's amazing. Thank you every single person that has come out to support us. This is what dreams are made of. Thank you to everyone who played a part in my rehab. I always believed I'd be here, but to score the winner – wow. These girls are special and what a special group of staff.'

Millie Bright, England defender: 'A lot of emotions, but I'm so proud. What more could you ask for as a player? Playing a home EURO in front of your nation, selling out Wembley – the heart of football in England. The fans have been so incredible.'

Leah Williamson, England captain: 'We talked and talked and finally we did it. It's the proudest moment of my life so I'm going to lap it up and take every single second in. The legacy of this tournament and this team is a change in society; we've brought everyone together.'

Fran Kirby, England forward: 'It's amazing; something I've dreamed of for a long, long time. To win this now is amazing. It's incredible. To get to the final and get the win is what this team is all about.'

Damehoods for all of them!
